Gotta be the Nugget, Davis for me. I like Ronnie the fact that he can use both hands is class, but its too early to lable him the greatest. Ronnie is probably the most exciting to watch. His only won the World Championships once, I believe. Davis has won it 6 times and is still going strong at the age of 38?? Would have loved to have seen him beat Dong in the recent finals.

So, its Davis for me.

You cant read a chinamans face. Believe me. I went to job interviews where I've been interviewed by orientals and it was a vey unpleasant experience. They never even smiled and I couldn't "read" if I was impressing them or not.

Alex Higgins was just a genius, flawed as a person but an awesome snooker player. :)

Alex Higgins and Ronnie O'Sullivan are the most naturally talented, Hendry and Davis are the biggest achivers, Jimmy White is the biggest underachiever.

O'Sullivan is unbeatable when he's on form, other than him I'd say a young Hendry.

For me Steve Davis, simply because he had the overall game, attack and safety.

O'Sullivan is the most exciting but doesn't always have the temperament.

However on his day on an even table I feel he would beat all other former Champions.


My top ten.

Steve Davis 6 Time World Champion
Stephen Hendry 7 Time World Champion
Ronnie O'Sullivan 2 Time World Champion
Joe Davis 15 time World Champion
Ray Reardon 6 Time World Champion
Fred Davis 7 time World Champion
John Pullman 7 time World Champion
Alex Higgins 2 Time World Champion
John Higgins 1 Time World Champion
Jimmy White 6 Time Runner Up
